Missed our Information Evening?
Don't worry, we've got you covered! Just join us during our usual weekly meetings on Monday evenings at 8pm c.t. in ZHG 002. Feel free to join us whenever you like, new members can (and do) join the society all year around. Therefore, it is not awkward at all to show up in the middle of the semester, so you absolutely do not have to wait for our next “Einsteigerabend”. We are looking forward to meeting you!
The Model United Nations Society Göttingen e.V. (MUNSG) was established in 2005. A group of students decided to participate in the famous Harvard World MUN in Edinburgh and founded the society. Since then, the society has constantly evolved and was proud to organize their first GöMUN-conference in 2009.
Apart from planning and holding the conference, the society works closely together with the Department of Political Science of the Georg-August-University Göttingen. Since the winter semester 2006/2007 the University offers an interdisciplinary seminar about the United Nations in cooperation with our society.
As a non-profit organization with the aim of improving international dialogue, the society also raises funds to offer financial support to its members, who wish to attend MUN-conferences, whenever possible.
Besides our engagement in Göttingen, we are working together with other MUN groups in Germany. Under the roof of the network Junges-UNO-Netzwerk (JUNON) we are helping to plan assemblies of delegates, workshops for other MUN groups and substantive work groups or study tours. Since the summer semester 2017 our society is proudly partaking in the project "UN im Klassenzimmer" (UN in the classroom), teaching pupils about the United Nations. JUNON is also a partner organization of the United Nations Association of Germany e.V.
